The University of Jamestown's annual "One Acts" opens at 7:30 May 3 at the Reiland Fine Arts Center. Playwrights include Hunter Carpenter, ReeAnn Christianson and Kenady Hansen. Tickets will be available at the door or for reservation call UJ at 252-3467, ext. 5436. School will be out soon for elementary kids in Jamestown, and teachers are getting their classes geared up for that last month. But opportunities abound for the teachers to get kids involved in nature, history and to learn how North American bison have impacted the ecology of the Upper Midwest prairies.
The times, they are a changing. Art shows come and go, and the University of Jamestown has had an art exhibit every semester since I arrived here in 1992. At first, we struggled for a place to hang a dozen pieces and display some 3D works. I knew it would be a short time and we'd be looking for a venue to stage a real art show. Raugust Library was our "gallery" for almost a decade. The visual art department, along with theater and music departments, moved in 2001 to the new Reiland Fine Arts Center with a gallery large enough for semester assignments.
